The Strawbs
While many 1970s British prog-rock bands sound quaintly dated these days (Yes, Moody Blues, Genesis), the Strawbs remain eminently listenable. Their best albums -- Grave New World, Bursting at the Seams -- sound even better today. Perhaps that's because the Strawbs were far more song-oriented than their artier peers -- they started out the Strawberry Hill Boys, a bluegrass-influenced Britfolk outfit that once counted the late Sandy Denny as a member. The Strawbs are still going strong, albeit in an acoustic setting, featuring Dave Cousins, Dave Lambert, Chas Cronk, and, for some shows, John Hawken. Thankfully, a career-spanning boxed set is coming soon.
